Police arrested Patricia Krentcil, 44, of Nutley, New Jersey, after they were called to her daughter Anna's elementary school April 24. The young girl reportedly told the school nurse she was in pain from burns she suffered while "tanning with mommy".
Patricia Krentcil's attorney entered a plea of not guilty to second degree child endangerment. Krentcil denies she took her daughter, Anna, into a stand-up tanning booth, maintaining that the little girl waited in the room, while she herself tanned.
